The family of Sgt. Oron Shaul have stated that they would be erecting a protest tent in front of the prime ministers residence on Sunday in an interview with Channel 10

Sgt. Oron Shaul went missing during Operation Protective Edge in 2014 and has subsequently been confirmed dead by the Israeli government. His body has yet to be returned.

Sgt. Shaul's parents, Zahava and Herzl, stated to Channel 10 that the purpose of the protest tent is to pressure cabinet ministers from signing any Israeli-Turkish agreement without a condition that Hamas return the bodies of Israeli soldiers in Gaza as Turkey has diplomatic relations with Hamas.

"It is unfathomable that we give the Turks achievements and answer their demands while our children are still being held in Gaza." Oron's parents said.

The security cabinet is scheduled to meet on Wednesday to approve a rapprochement agreement with Turkey that is expected to be finalized on Sunday.
